The event will take place at 10:30 am on Thursday, August 4, outside the Main Library, located at 800 Alma Street. Terry and Ladin will introduce a variety of world music traditions including found sound, jazz, Appalachian banjo, and step dancing, as they create tunes utilizing bells, boxes, balls, body music, and beyond.
